Hi, I’m Sam. I’m a writer, researcher, and communications/social impact strategist with over a decade of experience working in the tech sector, primarily with startups/social enterprises and nonprofits. Now, I work at the intersection of tech, development, media, and policy to create/transform/and support innovations and ecosystems that make the world better for everyone. I love places, and I love ideas – their future, their connectivity, their cultures. I think about how places and ideas develop and how people create, experience, and are influenced by them.
Currently, I’m based in St. Petersburg, Florida, back in the US after four years abroad. Before St Pete, I lived in the Boston suburbs (hometown), Miami, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Cambridge, England. I’ve traveled to and/or worked with organizations across the U.S., South America, Europe, and Africa. I’m an alumna of the London School of Economics and Political Science (MSc Local Economic Development), the University of Miami (BS Journalism and International Studies), and the original Boston Startup School (Product Development).
I made this blog for journalism class when I was student in 2009… since then, it has evolved into my most personal record of my life.
Feel free to say hello :) – Sam
